The virginal idealism of Neha Malini (Soha Ali Khan), the protagonist of Manish Harishankar’s film Chaarfutiya Chhokare, is just one of the ingredients of this standard “social issue" capsule. Rural Bihar is a seat of rotten patriarchy and oppression. Child marriage and child trafficking are de rigueur. This is a watered-down version of the world we have seen in some of the later films of Prakash Jha. Neither the ruthless nor the aggrieved are complex—one shade defines every character.
